S4HANA Adoption Model

Live Panel: Unpacking the latest S/4HANA adoption data 

After the launch of David Lees’ recent S/4HANA Adoption Model, several critical data points have emerged:

  • 43% of ECC customers will not have completed their S/4HANA migrations by end of 2027
  • 55% of all ECC and S/4HANA customers will be out of mainstream maintenance by 2027
  • Demand for migration resources will peak at end of 2027, requiring 75% more resources than today

These findings paint a complex picture for SAP customers in the years ahead, but proactive IT leaders can remain on the positive side of these statistics by taking action today.

What topics will be discussed?

To help guide you through these challenges, we’re gathering some of the top SAP experts in the world in a live panel discussion hosted by the model’s creator, David Lees, to explore topics such as:

  • Considerations for “early adopter” S/4HANA customers that are facing maintenance issues
  • How to address finite migration resource demand peaks and their budget implications  
  • Likely migration timelines and the difference between “started”, “live” and “completed” phases 
  • Maintaining ECC alongside S/4HANA due to data retention needs and integration complexities 

Note: This session is restricted to 100 attendees only
